Not that wrong? In alternative fact land maybe.


I had to look it up but in 2003 there were 15.7 million Italian Americans, between 1990 and 2000 there was an increase of over 1 million Italian immigrants. If the same rate of immigration continued in the last 14 years, there would be over 17 million Italian immigrants now. Granted they won't have all be born in Italy.

I'm not defending Trump, but this thread seems to be grasping at straws for a ***** about Trump.

I literally almost spit out my drink laughing when I saw a clip of him saying this... there is really something wrong with this man-child



Or.... Trump, the Manchurian candidate...is a Russian plan elected to destroy the US from within;

Fundamentally, however, someone like Trump does not get elected unless there are a LOT of really dumb and/ or partisan voters in this country.

If they weren't born in Italy, how are they immigrants? Americans born here of Italian descent aren't immigrants for God's sake.

Trump said 18 Americans were born in Italy.

Think about it. We have about 42MM immigrants (to be clear, BORN IN ANOTHER COUNTRY), kind of common knowledge. And roughly half are Latino. So the remainder, say 21 million, 18 million of those are from Italy? Come on.

Yeah, I shouldn't have used the word immigrant it should have been Italian Americans (which is how they describe themselves)

I understand what he said and that it's not accurate but I still don't think it's that big of an overstatement by Trump.

I'm actually surprised the number of immigrants in the US is so low.

It is kind of sad that posters I disagreed with but respected, have been reduced to trolls since November.  

They talked constantly of Obama Derangement Syndrome but that was like a head cold compared to the current hysteria which is along the lines of ebola.  The left has become utterly unhinged.  Of course, it does gives us a chance to see their true colors.

 

 

BTW, has this guy been fired yet?  If not, why not?  Seems the usual double standard is at work.

Yeah, a Russian plan.  Not sure why they didn't pull for Hillbillary and just write a check for ownership of the entire DC area.  LOL.  You people are such a hoot.

It's a huge overstatement. Is it a big deal? No, but indicative of his mental sloppiness.

Are you still nodding off from your multi-month nap. Stop the "medical" weed for a bit, to help clear the haze in your brain....

Putin despises Hillary, and they have pics of Trump doing the nasty.

I guess that should have been our first clue?

It will have you still thinking Clinton had no Senate impeachment trial despite being shown the C-Span video and told the vote....  And that you had without the OD.
